    Auto document scanner does not work 100%
    For example it only views the back side of my driver’s license as a document and not the front side. Within the same minute of using my camera and document scanner on my Samsung Galaxy Note 20 ultra 5G, the little yellow icon is there while scanning the backside of my license, the second I flip it over to the front, the icon and yellow lines outlay disappear. Very frustrating. I’ve tried everything to get it to work. It fine on other forms of Documents, just doesn’t seem to realize my Driver’s License is indeed a document.
